SAFE’s Top Priority:

Save Soledad Canyon

Our organization is dedicated to actions that protect the environment for all. Our current focus is stopping the planned gravel mine in Soledad Canyon. In 2013, our efforts include a letter writing and advocacy campaign in support of Senate Bill 771 by Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif. If approved, it would cancel the CEMEX mining contracts in Soledad Canyon and compensate CEMEX through the sale of surplus federal lands near Victorville.
